How to pack for Vietnam’s climate

F.A.Q.

Vietnam is one of the most popular destinations. The land is fascinating and there is a lot to see and to discover. So what you pack depends on what you want to do locally.

How to pack for Vietnam’s climate

What to pack in the suitcase?

Vietnam has all sorts of weather conditionsIf you think Vietnam is just hot and humid, you have read only one page about Vietnam's climate! 

While the weather in North Vietnam varies between four seasons (winter, spring, autumn and summer), with hot and rainy days from May to October, South Vietnam has a dry season from November to April and a rainy season from April to October and August is typically the rainiest Month. 

Central Vietnam has warm temperatures all year round, with the hottest months in the middle of the year and the cooler and drier months from November to April. You should therefore check when and where you will be in Vietnam to pack the right things for your trip.

A lightweight sweatshirt or lightweight jacket is ideal for chilly evenings in higher-altitude cities (such as Da Lat, Hue, Dak Lak). Bring comfortable long-sleeved shirts and lightweight long-sleeved trousers for the day as the sun shines brightly can easily lead to sunburn. Short pants are more comfortable for outdoor activities because the humidity will make you sweat easily.

If you plan to visit the areas of North Vietnam (Ha Noi, Sa Pa, Ha Giang), Central Vietnam (Hue, Da Nang) and South Central Vietnam (Da Lat) from December to February, winter clothing is recommended. The daytime temperature can be between 5 ° C and 15 ° C. 

These products protect your skin from the intense sunlight and heat, which is typically 25-35 ° C in summer. A waterproof sunscreen is more effective in this humid climate.

Many tourists are unaware of the many health issues that can be caused by mosquito bites. 
Mosquitoes occur especially in the rainy season in the Mekong Delta. 
Therefore mosquito repellent should be taken everywhere and used. Tip: Mosquito spray can also be purchased on site.

Vietnamese cuisine and street food are popular with tourists. However, some foods that you are trying for the first time can cause diarrhea because your stomach is not used to it. So be prepared, because in some rural areas it is not so easy to get medication.

If you're traveling by night in Vietnam by bus, ear plugs and an eye mask are helpful, as in night buses sometimes you can hear music all the time, or the audacious honking of the bus driver.

If you want to bring great photos of your unforgettable trip, then you also pack a camera, enough memory cards and, if necessary, an adapter.

Also consider the credit or debit card for cash withdrawals, a photocopy of your passport in case you lose your passport.

For a swim in the sea or in the mysterious Halong Bay swimwear is quite practical.

This is truly off-the-beaten path

The food was exquisite and more than we could eat. From a traditional Mekong BBQ with fresh caught fish, boarding one of the boats at the floating market in Can Tho, picking our own fruits, cruising on the local ferry boats, karaoke (of course), just chilling in a hammock and much more...and that all without another tourist in sight.

We saw the real life of the people

We saw the real life of the people, living in the Mekong Delta. They showed us how they live, how they cook, and how they have a good time while singing karaoke. We saw the floating market and the night market of Can Tho and we went to places, which you can’t find by your own.
